Western Maryland is graced with an abundance of rocky outposts, cliffs, and boulders that make it easy to explore rock climbing this spring. We’ve got some great recommendations to help you get started!
For a guided tour, check out the Adventure Sports Center International or Wisp Resort. They have tours for climbers of all experience levels and includes several hours of climbing and repelling at the Fork Run Recreation Area.
While gear and climbing shoes can be provided, you will need to bring a water bottle and snacks, closed toe shoes, and sunscreen as well as long pants and comfortable clothing.
Cooper’s Rock State Forest, located 45 minutes away in West Virginia, is another great venue for climbing!
